Since Final Fantasy XIII, Lightning's
Claire Farron has indeed been utterly milked dried this generation and with the Final Fantasy XIII saga finally coming to a close after five long years you'd think the poor lass would finally have some quality time to rest but you're dead wrong..
In a recent Siliconera interview, Director of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Motomu Toriyama had a few things to say in regards to his favourite Final Fantasy heroine and her future in the video game industry..
"For Lightning, her story ends here in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, as this game is meant as a finale to this series. But we know that Lightning is an extremely popular character, even when compared to other Final Fantasy characters. So there is a possibility that Lightning would appear in other future Final Fantasy titles, not as a protagonist, but as a guest character." - ToriyamaThe obsession with Lightning was cute at first but a line has to be drawn at some point. It's like Lightning has become SE's latest mascot in one mouthful and the ride just never stops. Unfortunately her more charismatic comrades were never given the equal opportunity in contrast. So in conclusion we can all agree that Lightning is indeed the new Cid and John Cena's long lost sister. In other news Lightning Returns again and again.
